A nuclear of disturbing developments in the international nuclear nonproliferation arena took place during the twelve months between the 2003 and 2004 sessions of the preparatory committee (PrepCom) fot the 2005 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (2005 NPT RevCon).
Yet the 2004 session, as many of those attending might be forgiven for characterizing it, was a case of "fiddling while Rome burns". While most of the key contemporary issues found their way into the debates at the PrepCom's 2004 session, its ending was confused and confusing.
